Early Literacy


The Scotch Plains Public Library is intent on aiding all community members gain a life long love of reading and learning, and that begins with our youngest patrons. All children’s programming is designed with the Every Child Ready to Read initiative in mind. Every Child Ready to Read promotes five essential practices to nurture pre-reading skills; read, write, sing, talk, play.
